Obama in Search of New Brand or Something

I guess Hope and Change has gone by the wayside and now they’re looking for something along the lines of “it would have been even worse without us” or some such nonsense. Funny though, if they’re looking to rebrand this catastrophic failure of a president, they might want to reconsider running an image of him with a red star.

Just saying.

The five-pointed red star, a pentagram without the inner pentagon, is a symbol of communism. It is sometimes understood to represent the five fingers of the worker’s hand, as well as the five continents. A lesser known suggestion[citation needed] is that the five points on the star were intended to represent the five social groups that would lead Russia to communism: the youth, the military, the industrial labourers, the agricultural workers or peasantry, and the intelligentsia. It was one of the emblems, symbols, and signals representing the Soviet Union under the rule of the Communist Party, along with the hammer and sickle.

Well, at least Elle McPherson’s on board.

    I have an idea. It’s edgy. It’s hip. It’s got a Hollywood connection. Take the melodious tones of Tom Hanks narrating the love note to obama and put the vocal track with the tape of Tom Hanks being the emcee of the fundraiser with Glenn Frey. So edgy, the corners could kill.

    Idea #2 Take that image above, and instead of a campaign bus, have them put it on the side of a T-54. They might as well get a ride that fits the picture.
